Bonzo saves a goal by George Studdy
Bonzo saves a goal -- he races onto a football pitch, receives a large, heavy ball in the stomach, and is dragged away practically unconscious. George Ernest Studdy (1878-1948), was the creator of 'Bonzo', a small dog with saucer-like eyes and indiscriminate breeding who first appeared in the Sketch in 1922. The 'Bonzo' craze swept the world resulting in postcards, annuals, toys and other merchandise. Credit should read: Estate of George Studdy/Gresham Marketing Ltd./ILN/Mary Evans Date: 1923
